My most common answer to a question about Perl is:
I'd rather be interessted in questions you get asked about Perl. ;) My "highlight" from last month is
"Oh Perl, thats the new Cobol, isn't it?"
Most of the time when I raise the topic "Perl" I'm asked questions about Perl where Perl is compared to Java or PHP.
My answers include
- Yes, OOP is possible (and FP and ...)
- If your knowlege of Java were similar to your Perl knowlege, you would know nothing about Servlets, Hibernate, JUnit, Log4J, Maven, Spring (whatever).
- If your knowlege of PHP were similar to your Perl knowlege... ah, never mind.
Actually, no real questions about programming or code.
Sad but true... :/
